Just 5 weeks into the course and I am improvising over the major scale. I know, this is not a big deal for the more experienced players here, but for me this is huge! I practiced guitar on and off for some years and I never got to improvising over a scale!
Maybe that means that I am a slow learner or just slightly retarded, but discovering, what scales are actually good for feels like a huge accomplishment for me! And it opens so many possibilities to practice. I can memorize different scales, learn the note names, learn the notes on the fretboard, practice a steady rhythm and just have fun and feeling like making real music while doing it! (nobody would want to buy the record, but who cares…)
@JoshFossgreen I am really impressed, how quickly you manage to improve the skill and knowledge of your students. I never realized how important a good teacher and a solid learning path is. I know this sounds stupidly obvious, but there are so many ways to get lost and waste a lot of time without going anywhere…and I know them all!
It´s such a relief to finally see that this is actually going somewhere. I am so excited to find out what comes next! Thank you for putting together this course, it´s real fun!
